Perfect Products rider Hope Glynn, of Sonoma Valley Stables in Petaluma, CA spent the summer crisscrossing the country with her team of top horses and students, laying down winning trips in hunter rings on both coasts.
In June, she traveled to the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair, finishing with two horses in the top ten in the exciting $25,000 International Hunter Derby on the last day of this historic show in Devon, PA.
In July, Glynn finished first and second in the Sonoma Horse Park’s first-ever International Hunter Derby with Carmunde Z and Woodstock. That win was a warmup for another big blue at the Menlo Charity Horse Show in Atherton, CA; Glynn won the $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby with Kings Peak.

Her derby success continued in August, when Glynn traveled to Lexington, KY for the USHJA International Hunter Derby Finals, and finished 9th place overall with Woodstock.
And in early September, Glynn and Kings Peak led round 2 of the $500,000 HITS Hunter Prix Finals in Saugerties, NY, finishing 2nd overall after the final day of competition.
It was a busy summer made worth it by the many successes that Glynn brought back home to California for her owners. Throughout her entire season, Perfect Products equine formulas were there to support her horses and help them perform at their very best.
“Perfect Products was with me from start to finish on my successful trips to the east coast this year,” says Glynn. “My horses use GastroEase Resque to help prevent shipping stress and promote overall health. And they stay on Lactalex to help their muscles recover faster. Lactic acid can build up during travel and competition and this is the best way to prevent it. I don’t show on the West Coast or the East Coast without Perfect Products as part of my team for success.”
